Paris Hilton's latest venture: jewellery line

NEW YORK (AP) —

Paris Hilton, the hotel heiress famous for being famous, has created a jewellery line of pink sparkles, stars and hearts.

The Paris Hilton collection, which ranges in price from $15 to $95 (U.S.), is available exclusively at Amazon.com. It includes necklaces, earrings, a charm bracelet, a belly chain and a belly bar, all in sterling silver and pink crystal.

"I just looked into my style and looked through my jewellery and things I liked, and used that when I was designing and sketching," Hilton said Wednesday.

Hilton, 23, worked with a designer and modelled the jewellery shown on the website.

"I thought my fans would want to have part of me, something I designed," she said. "A young girl is able to afford it; it looks expensive but it's not."

Eager fans can also buy a copy of her memoir, Confessions of an Heiress: A Tongue-in-Chic Peek Behind the Pose, to be published Tuesday by Fireside, and the DVD of the first season of her reality TV show, The Simple Life, with her friend Nicole Richie.

Hilton — whose beloved pet chihuahua, Tinkerbell, was missing for a week last month — bristled at the suggestion that she's able to design jewellery and record an upcoming CD because of her socialite fame.

"I have a great line of jewellery and I have a great voice," she said. "The product is there, so people can't say anything."
